312. From 'Arcades'
O'RE the smooth enameld green 
    Where no print of step hath been, 
    Follow me as I sing, 
    And touch the warbled string. 
Under the shady roof         5
Of branching Elm Star-proof, 
    Follow me, 
I will bring you where she sits 
Clad in splendor as befits 
    Her deity.  10
Such a rural Queen 
All Arcadia hath not seen.
